I don't honestly know enough about why Texas blows chunks this year but under what circumstances does it make sense for them to move Beltre? They could obviously use that money to acquire another starter or several key positions.
As for the O's, could we get him and then unload him this winter for prospects? There's got to be teams out there that would want him.
Or he could start next year at 3rd and move to dh when Machado comes up. This would give Machado more playing time in triple to actually be ready. He clearly wasn't quite ready this year when we brought him up.
We could also potentially move Beltre at the july deadline.
